by the white house and afghan president karzai during karzai's current visit to washington. the obama administration has reportedly set its expectations low for passage of a new assault weapons ban in congress despite a change in national consciousness in the aftermath of last month's newtown shooting massacre. the new york times is reporting the white house has decided it will be exceedingly difficult for the ban to make it to president obama's desk, leading administration aides to develop other gun control rules that would draw bi-partisan support. the alternatives include universal background checks, more government research on gun violence. the white house is also reportedly considering a $50 million effort to fund the placement of hundreds of police officers and new surveillance equipment in public schools, a move that would resemble the national rifle association's call for armed guards in every school. news of the proposals comes as vice-president joe biden hosted gun industry representatives at the white house on thursday as part of his ongoing task force on u.s. gun violence.

,000 and 15,000 there in support and training roles but the obama white house is now saying that they're talking about even lower numbers about 3,000 or 4,000. there's also talk of a zero option, bringing all u.s. troops home from afghanistan but some on the ground there say that could lead to an all-out civil war and taliban takeover. as for president karzai, he said he would like to see levels around 15,000 but today suggested numbers are less important than u.s. cooperation and supplying the them with tanks and drones. how much will it all cost? already the u.s. and allies pledged $16 billion in civilian aid and military ops on top of $642 billion the u.s. spent since 9/11 and 2,100 u.s. lives lost. let's start with kristen welker. what are you hearing came out of the meeting? >> reporter: a couple of headlines out of today's meeting. the withdrawal plans have been accelerated a bit. both announcing that u.s. troops handing over control to afghan forces this spring. that is a few months earlier than expected so that means that u.s. troops will shift their role in afghanistan. they
. but when you look at his experience before he came to the government with the obama white house, he was at citi and got $1 million salary and $1 million bonus. this irks not only conservatives who think obama's being hypocritical to nominate someone this kind of banking background after wagging his finger at the wealthy all year. but almost frustrates and infuriates the left because they would like to see someone more progressive in the treasury role. >> more progressive. but what about this? he was the chief operating officer of a proprietary trading operation of about $54 billion. now, that has been outlawed under dodd/frank. so once again, i see hypocrisy from team obama. >> you've already seen some senators on capitol hill such as chuck grassley of iowa raise questions about what jack lew did at citi. and there's been a huffington post investigation about how lew's unit within the company was tied to hedge fund groups dealing with the mortgage market that were making bets as the mortgage market collapsed. that's going to come under scrutiny when his nomination is looked over by
meeting with afghan president hamid karzai in the white house, president obama made it clear the war is ending. the american war. and it's ending sooner than was previously planned. let's listen. >> let me say it as plainly as i can, starting this spring, our troops will have a different mission, training, advising, assisting afghan forces. make no mistake, our path is clear and we are moving forward. every day more afghans are stepping up and taking responsibility for their own security, and as they do, our troops will come home. and next year this long war will come to a responsible end. >> no doubt it's still a messy path and that end if afghanistan is ready to take over its own security. that's the question. what role will the taliban plal in the future of that country. and what role will the united states play after we end our combat mission? how many troops will we keep behind in afghanistan to keep that country secure if we can? jim moran is a democrat congressman from virginia and westmore is a retired army captain and author of "the other wes moore. i guess the question come

at the white house is that timeline for troop withdraw. i can tell you that we don't expect president obama to announce actual numbers when he addresses the nation during a joint news conference a little bit later on this afternoon along with afghan president hamid karzai, but the question is how many troops will remain after 2014? for the very first time this week the white house signalled that the president was open to having a zero troop presence in afghanistan after 2014. a lot of people wondering if they're just saying that as a bargaining chip or if the president is actually considering that. some commanders have suggested that the troops remain at a level of 6,000 to 15,000. right now there are 66,000 troops in afghanistan. either way, alex, it appears as though the white house is leaning toward a more scaled back troop presence after that date. now, the white house feels it's emboldened by what they are calling a weakened presence of al qaeda operatives. also, they're taking budget considerations into their thoughts here while they're trying to work through this, but the criticism i
